Here are three top tips for cleaning your floor so that you avoid unnecessary wear and tear and keep it looking beautiful.

Can you vacuum your laminate floor?

Vacuuming a laminate floor can have many advantages; you will lift all the dirt before you attempt to clean it including removing all the dust and other debris that you cannot see in the joins of the floor. Vacuuming is fine but there are restrictions on what head you should use. Turn the brush roll off before use to avoid scratching your floor.

What mop should you use?

You should use a mop that is microporous for cleaning your black laminate flooring. If you have a surface like https://www.woodfloorwarehouse.co.uk/laminate-flooring/black.html, why not use a microfibre dust mop or a sponge?

Can you use a mop bucket and solution?

The problem with using a solution in a bucket is twofold: most solutions aren’t suitable for laminate flooring and excess water on the floor will damage the surface. To avoid this, it is recommended that a suitable detergent is sprayed directly onto the mop instead; there will be less excess water this way. Check the solution before use.
